Having opened their account last year in classiest fashion with a reissue of El Sueño de Hyparco's Ambientes Hormonales, Barcelona’s Urpa i musell turn their attention and expertise to a 1991 holy grail of fourth-world ambient/minimalism from two luminaries of Portuguese pop/rock: Carlos Maria Trindade (Corpo Diplomático, Heróis do Mar) and Nuno Canavarro (Street Kids, Delfins, and the cult 1988 solo LP Plux Quba). A sample-heavy, electro-acoustic evocation of "ancient maps, distant travels and evocative landscapes", it’s very much Nice Music…and though its prevailing mood is undeniably one of barefoot, bumbag-wearing Utopianism, sustained listening reveals all kind of strange instrumental flourishes and reality-wrinkling repetitions…deep thought triggered with a light touch; a cumulative psychedelic intensity. Having said that, things do get particularly tasty on side 2, where the sunlight begins to cast some shadow: ‘ven 5’ is a highlight, as is the Hassell-esque controlled menace of of ‘Aelux'. If you’ve enjoyed your Pep Llopis, Jorge Reyes, Luis Delgado, Cybe…this one’s a no-brainer.
